A fresh, aperitif-style Champagne, featuring chalk and pastry notes layered with flavors of poached pear, lemon zest, smoked almond and fleur de sel, all riding the airy mousse. - Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator
Bonnet Ponson Brut Premier Cru is their signature house blend of 35% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay for over 60 years. It is from their premier cru vineyards in Chamery, Vrigny and Coulommes la Montagne.
This Champagne is aged for 48 months in the cellars; the Brut Premier cru includes an important proportion of reserve wines made in the previous harvests. This blending of reserve wines helps to maintain consistency of house style.
The relatively high proportion of Pinot Meunier gives this Champagne excellent aromatic complexity and richness that makes for fine food pairing.
